I'm taking a photography class and am learning so much.
One of our projects is to find the alphabet in things all around us.
This is my "T" for Thursday.
This is definitely a challenge.
So off I go to find 25 more items to showcase the alphabet through
my camera's eye.

Have a great Thursday!

Check Your Toes!!!

Do you get pedicures on a regular basis? Do you keep polish on your toes at all times? Do you check out your nails while you are having a pedicure? Well...I am ashamed to admit that I get pedicures on an irregular basis and will repaint over polish on my toes at times. It was last week, when I took my polish off myself when I was shocked to see my big toe nail was a bit raised and didn't look right and it was dark in color. Yikes!!! So then I took the polish off the other foot and my other big toe nail was slightly discolored but also lifting. I was SHOCKED and EMBARASSED!!! I'm a clean can this be??? I have a fungus under my toe nails. WHAT ARE THE ODDS OF SOMEONE HAVING A FUNGUS UNDER BOTH BIG TOE NAILS AT THE SAME TIME??? I ASK YOU???

I called a podiatrist and went to the appointment thinking that I was going to be given a pill or a topical treatment NOT told that the best option was to remove NOT ONE but BOTH nails!!! Yes....I walked out of the office after insurance approval without both my big toe nails and two very special velcro shoes. :)

The photo below is a photo of my toes when I got home! I won't show you what they look like's NOT pretty!! And my nails WILL grow back in about 4-6 months!!

I'm sharing this with all of you so you don't have the same surprise I had last week. CHECK your fingers and your toes girls!!! AND let your nails breath in the winter or every now and then.

P.S. The big issue I face right now is trying to find a pair of shoes to wear to go out of the house. I was able to wear a pair of sandals yesterday and a pair of tennis shoes today for a short time as it's too cool to wear sandals out. I am thankful for the little things....being able to wear a pair of shoes with little pain!!

It's Tuesday!

Another gorgeous day in southern California...this is a shot from my backyard. I am practicing for my photography class.

Hubby is on another job interview (he was laid off on December 30th) so please pray for God's guidance as he seeks employment. He has had 5 interviews with 3 different companies. As with most men his age at this time, he is over qualified and his last salary is over what is currently being budgeted. He may have to take a job with pay from 10 years ago. We were downsizing and beginning to prepare for retirement and this will definitely make us do that sooner! We are just praying for an open door and for a position that he will enjoy and bring his talents to assist the company he goes to work for. We can figure out how to live with less and we know God will provide. He always has and always does.

It's a good day! I just wanted to give you all an update as we walk through this time in our lives.

Random Dozen

Today I'm linking up with Linda from 2nd Cup of Coffee and her Random Dozen.

So here ya go, my answers to TWELVE random questions:

1. Are you pleasant when you're ill, or are you a grumpy, fussy patient? I am a pretty good sick person~usually stay out of the way and sleep it off. Luckily I am not sick much because I DO NOT.
2. When you find out that school is cancelled(due to inclement weather) what is your gut reaction? Never had to deal with inclement weather here in sunny southern California!

3. What is one domestic skill you wish you could improve? Decorating my home. I can go so far but have the hardest time finishing...the small touches and filling in blank spaces. I have a friend that helps me...she needs to come over more often Brenda!!

5. What song is on your mind today? It's Gonna Be A Good Day by the Black Eyed Peas

6. Do you prefer contemporary movies or classic? I enjoy both!

7. How well do you "compartmentalize" your feelings? I don't get too upset and am pretty optomistic. I can usually move on and forgive and forget MOST things.

8. What is the first thing that attracted you to your spouse? His good looks and body. :)

9. When was the last time your heart raced? Walking up Mt. Rubidoux

10. What are your memories of Valentine's Day at school? Making our Valentine's boxes and going around to everyone's desk to deliver my valentine's to each person in my class.
